2 Every two years, there are enormous crowds that go to cast their vote for the candidate that they feel will best serve their interests—those whom they wish to serve them in the governmental system. Those people keep up to date on the candidates and decide for themselves which of them have the same ideals and beliefs which in turn, will become a factor in their decisions and stances on issues and situations that they may face. Based on beliefs and stances, all candidates are separated into groupings with a large collection of other men and women that share feelings on issues. These groupings are labeled the political “parties.” When those people who go to vote every two years, they usually identify themselves with a party. When I say identify, I am speaking of their natural draw to the party because of their consistencies in beliefs. The same is true for the religion that a person classifies himself or herself as. All religious people that can easily state their religion’s title knows why they have chosen that particular religion—because they connect with it and feel that the beliefs that the religion stands for is similar or right in line with how they feel. Where these two come together explains an emotion that Josh Mitchell expresses in his article “Religion is Not a Preference.” He describes how the four terms choice, identity, value, and preference have been “extended to comprehend the modality of religious experience that now here and there spills over into politics.”
